Figure 7 XV Load Window
Figure 8 XV Save Window
At the bottom of the window is a list of possible formats in which you can save the file. The "Save at normal size" checkbox forces XV to save the file at its original size (otherwise only the displayed image will be saved). The "File list" checkbox lets you save an entirely different type of information -- this option saves to a file the list of images currently in the XV file list.
The Color Choices are as follows:
Greyscale: Saves the image in a greyscale format.
B/W Dithered: Saves the image as a 1-bit per pixel, black-and-white dithered version of the image.
Reduced Color: Saves the image with as many or few colors as XV was able to use on the display.
Figure 9 XV PostScript Window
The image can be (roughly) positioned on the page by clicking in the image rectangle and dragging it around. As you move the image, the "Top" and "Left" position displays will show the size of the top and left margins (the distance between the top-left corner of the page and the top-left corner of the image).
You can change the size of the printed image by adjusting the Width or Height dials. Normally, the dials are locked together, to keep the aspect ratio of the image constant. You can unlock the dials by turning off the checkbox located below the dials.
Located below the `page' rectangle is a set of radio buttons that let you specify the current paper size (8.5"x11", 8.5"x14", 11"x17", A4, B5, 4"x5", and 35mm), and orientation (Portrait and Landscape).
The Center button will center the image on the page and the Maxpect button will make the image as large as possible (maintaining half-inch margins on all sides).
At the top of the XV PostScript window are a pair of checkboxes. The `preview' checkbox lets you specify whether or not to include a b/w preview of the image in the PostScript file. Certain desktop publishing programs may make use of such a preview.
The `compress' checkbox lets you specify whether or not to generate compressed 8-bit per pixel PostScript.
